Marcus is an LA-based musician, engineer, and producer. His career as a Pianist/Keyboardist included performances with artists like Andrew Ward, Walter Beasley, and Chaka Khan. Marcus attended the Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship, and majored in Music Business & Management, after which he turned his attention to discovery and promotion of emerging artists. Marcus began touring with and managing local bands on the eastern seaboard: Maine to Philadelphia.

This led to work with the Ted Kurland Agency, a full-service talent agency in Boston, where Marcus served as contracts manager for Wynton Marsalis, Pat Metheny, Gary Burton, and Christian McBride. In 2009 he accepted a position as lead recording and mix engineer at Cybersound Recording Studios, where he counted Joe Budden, Slaine, Wale and DJ Drama among his artist clients.

Marcus moved to Los Angeles and works as an audio engineer, manager, consultant, and mentor. His passion is what it was: the emerging artist, and he works to help the independent artist tell his/her story through art. As a tutor, Marcus gets to work with talented people and set them up for success.

Lessons/Tutoring sessions are 1-hour and can take place via Wyzant or Zoom platforms.

Homeschool

Piano

Piano

I've been playing piano my whole life. I'm trained in Jazz and while growing up have always performed with and musically directed choirs from a variety of local churches. My performance experiences include playing with Andre Ward, Christian McBride, Chaka Kahn, Floetry and more. Playing piano is what got me accepted into Boston's first and only Arts-focussed high school, Boston Arts Academy. From there, I received a full-scholarship right into Berklee College of Music where I continued to play piano and, also doubled up on Trombone. It's how I've become the music producer and engineer I am today.

Music Theory,

Music Theory

I attended the Berklee College of Music on a full-scholarship. My courses were on average a Level 3 of 4 skill level, with a few classes rating me Level 4. Other awards one during attendance. Proof of my scholarship and attendance can be confirmed via google search as it was highlighted in local media. Prior to college I attended and all Arts high school, majoring in music, piano and trombone. During these years, I've performed with some of the greatest names in jazz and pop/r&b. After college, I've been active in the music industry for 9 years. I've worked in agencies, labels, touring companies and recording studios. As a musician, composer, and producer, my music theory is tested and challenged everyday. I would certainly be your best candidate for Theory 1, 2, or 3.
